There are hairbrushes and there are flatirons, and then there are hairbrushes that plug into an outlet, heat up, and act like flatirons. Over the past few weeks, I have seen numerous versions of the straightening brush. People have tried ones from Amazon, Ebay, and Groupon- the reviews on these similar products have not been so great, so I wanted to find one would actually work, and I think I have done just that. Now lets start head candy straightening brush review:-
What does it claim:

My Experience :
I’ve only tested the product twice, but so far I agree with all of Head Kandy’s claims. When you plug in the brush you’ll find that it gives the temperature in celsius. It only took maybe one minute to heat up to the highest degree, which is 450F. That’s a really nice feature when you have a kid. You really don’t have that much time to wait for a your hair tools to heat up, while chasing a 5 year old around to put on pants. According to Head Kandy, the 450 degrees temp is for people who have thick and wavy hair. The brush is already auto set for all hair types at 365 degrees.
So of course when you’re straightening your hair with your regular straightener (CHI) you pull out about an inch or two per section you’re straightening. Since the product is essentially a brush, I did use larger sections of hair than normal.
I would definitely recommend the Hair Kandy Straightening brush over similar items on the market. It does cost a little more, but well worth the money in my opinion, because it comes with the warranty. Similar products on the market do not, depending on where it purchased from.
If you have tried out the straightening brushes, how has it worked for you? I’d love to know your thoughts!
